Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Sadly, the BPI is not able to organize an event this year but we do look forward to the opportunity next year. We are posting this announcement of some international events. If you are able to attend any of them, please do so. Or at the very least add your thoughts to those who are able to gather to stop the madness of nuclear weapons on August 6th and 9th.

Following an appeal to members to send us information on events to mark Hiroshima and Nagasaki Days 2021, here’s a parial list that we have compiled of events received:
